    Assignments up to June 15th are Included

    If you are not passing this course based on your first three marking periods, please do NOT panic. The year is NOT OVER and all hope is NOT lost. You all still have a chance to pass the course, so don't give up now!

    HOWEVER, you MUST complete all of the assignments so I can prove to school administrators you tried your best. If it is a judgement call and you have not completed work regularly, there is no way I can go to bat for you and advocate why you should get course credit.
